How bad are 94-98 Auto's, really?
I've got a '97 Super Duty that needs a clutch, been keeping an eye on trucks for about a month looking for another deal as good as this one... now I'm looking a little more hurriedly, but the only thing I can find cheap is Automatics. So... how bad are these autos, really?
My understanding from a couple drivers is that if you just treat them right they'll last forever... it's when you start trying to peel out with 15,000 pounds behind it, or not back off to let it shift that you start tearing stuff up. Is that about the long and skinny of it, or are they really that brittle?
And, what about the 99-02 Autos? Are they the same or different/worse/better?
